PBHA's South Boston Afteschool Program

Purpose Statement

PBHA\x{ef}\x{bf}\x{bd}s South Boston After School (SAS) is an arts-based literacy program for low-income youth who reside in South Boston. SAS utilizes an enrichment curriculum to promote the positive youth development of first and second graders who attend the James F. Condon Elementary School. SAS strives to empower youth through an academic enrichment and arts-based literacy curriculum, emphasizing academic confidence, conflict resolution, interdependence, prevention of risk-taking behaviors, and respect for diversity. Each Monday and/or Wednesday (2:00 \x{ef}\x{bf}\x{bd} 5:30 PM), tutors will support one or two students with their homework and then participate in group-wide workshop activities. SAS participants and volunteers also attend events like field trips and Family Fun Nights so that students, families, and volunteers can build meaningful relationships. SAS also builds upon connections made over the summer by providing programming for the same students served by the South Boston Outreach Summer program.
